Comments about Portfolio Series Watersoluble Oil Pastels:
Portfolio Series oil pastels are the creamiest and most vibrant oil pastels out there. I'm an artist and an art therapist and I love to use the pastels for my personal projects and for group art directives. The clients love these pastels as much as I do!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Super buy for the price
I have used oil pastels for years and own just bout every oil pastel there is. I found this brand one of the best. Others don't match it, especially price-wise.

Love these pastels!
By WNY Art Teacher
from Buffalo, NY
I ordered these for my students (K-5), and they are fabulous. A great value, easy clean-up (just keep an eye on the floor...don't step on them because if you don't realize they're there, you'll have a great big mess on your hands!) For the most part, these blend pretty well for my little kiddos. However, I will say that I wish the violet was not only more vibrant, but also more easily spreadable and blendable.
Excellent customer service!
These oil pastels are especially nice. I look forward to using them on many pieces of art. But best of all; I never have a worry about anything I order from Dick Blick. They always have exemplary customer service.
"I would buy this product again and again"
Great product at a budget price
The colors are great, the flow is smooth and easily turned into a wash with water. The price was so low that I bought several packs and used them to teach a class in abstract painting. Students loved them for the color and control..and the fluidity in turning them into a wash. If there is a criticism, it would be that I would like them to be more soluble with matte medium.. but for the price, these are great.
I used them for covering areas in journaling. They blended well and have a richness in color. Because they are a bit soft, which makes them blend well, you will use them up faster. Who cares...the price is right.

Excellent classroom medium
from Canton, GA
These water soluble oil pastels are amazing. Very creamy and easy to mix with great oil pastel effects. Using water and a paint brush with them changes their visual effect from oil pastels to watercolors. Students love working with this product.

got this for my birthday along with a long list of other things. This is just as described, it is creamy and it is fun, fun, fun. This is not for serious artists but absolutely great for playing around. The water soluble part gives more room to explore different blending and textures. These go on very nicely and one of the first techniques I tried was the scrafitto and it was a blast. Art is heaven no matter whether it is play or professional.
